Philadelphia Eagles Roster
Philadelphia Eagles starting right guard Brandon Brooks is still recovering from his Achilles' injury and has not yet been cleared for team drills. Brooks will "see how his body responds" to one-on-one drills this week. He remains a possibility for Week 1, but he'll need his injury to respond well to increasing work. Brooks suffered an Achilles' injury in the playoffs last season. The Eagles line would start Halapoulivaati Vaitai in place of Brooks if he can't work his way back in time.
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Cody Kessler (concussion) has resumed practicing. He was the main backup to starter Carson Wentz after Nate Sudfeld (wrist) got hurt, but the Eagles signed Josh McCown after watching their two backups go down. McCown will serve as the primary backup once the season starts, and Kessler's likely only around until Sudfeld is able to return.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Wendell Smallwood could be left off the final roster before the season begins. Smallwood set a career high in touches last season, but he was average at best. With the Eagles drafting Miles Sanders and trading for Jordan Howard, Smallwood was pushed down the depth chart and will need to compete with Josh Adams and Donnel Pumphrey for the last spot in the running back room. It'll likely come down to who looks best on special teams in the remaining preseason games.
Josh McCown is coming out of retirement to sign with the Philadelphia Eagles, according to sources. The Eagles are giving the veteran a one-year deal that includes $2 million fully guaranteed. The deal could be worth up to $5.4 million. The 40-year-old was needed after backups Cody Kessler (concussion) and Nate Sudfeld (wrist) suffered injuries in the first two preseason games. McCown went 5-11 as a starter for the Jets the last two years while throwing 19 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. The Eagles will be his 11th NFL team.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Charles Johnson is on the outside looking in for a roster spot in 2019. Johnson excelled in the AAF as part of the Orlando Apollos and looked promising on the Vikings in 2014, but he's already 30 and buried on the depth chart. Behind at least Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson, Nelson Agholor, and rookie J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, Johnson will have to beat out Mack Hollins, Braxton Miller, and several others to earn a spot on the 53-man roster.
